Screening with Ayen’s Cooking School for Men
Cifuentes’ first documentary film builds up a beautiful and fascinating portrait of the great Sudanese filmmaker, Gadalla Gubara (1920-2008). One of the pioneers of African cinema, he was still working at the age of 88, even though he was by then blind. The film draws on a unique collection of archive footage, still photography, and intimate interviews.
